This paper presents progress on an ongoing study of the effectiveness of the University of Texas at Austin’s Biomedical Engineering graduate program’s annual post-admission recruitment event in recruiting students of diverse backgrounds, including students of low SES, URMs, and those from Top 20 undergraduate engineering programs. Applicant, admit, visitor, and enrollee data was collected from 2009-2015. Recruitment event improvements have been made annually since 2012 to better cater to the student populations of interest. The initial results will inform future improvements and initiatives to meet our goal of recruiting the above mentioned target student populations.
